The White Rose Festival, 13th July 2019

In July 2019, Richmond Branch once again put forward a team to take part in the wonderful White Rose Festival, held annually in Harewood, Leeds.  We look forward to this event every year, and despite ominous weather forecasts, we had a hugely enjoyable day, dancing a varied selection of dances with friends in the beautiful sunshine.  

Two of our class teachers - Joy and Louise - also brought their children's teams along to take part, and it was wonderful to be able to watch these enthusiastic and talented young dancers, whilst we took a well-earned rest in between our own contributions!  

Our Honorary President, Fiona Turnbull, and her husband Richard, came to watch and support the team this year, and they later passed on this message:

"We would like to congratulate the Richmond Branch team both for the standard of dancing and the smart appearance of the team. Everyone seemed very relaxed and therefore danced with ease and grace, expressing happiness and the true joy of dancing.  Well done everyone."

A huge thank you has to go to Louise, our fantastic (and patient!) teacher, who always does an amazing job getting us ready for the day, and also to Leeds Branch for organising the festival.  Looking forward to next year already!
